Answer to Question #73260 in Atomic and Nuclear Physics for Adnan Rafi

Question #73260
How is a nucleus stable even inside proton-proton repelling each other?
Expert's answer
Indeed, two protons are repelling each other due to electromagnetic interaction, but protons are also attracting each other due to nuclear strong force, which at the range of 10^(−15) m is approximately 137 times as strong as electromagnetism. That is why nucleus is stable.
